AMPAS, an honorary but professional organization, maintains a voting-member count of 5,830as of 2007. Of these, actors number up to 1,311 members. These members watch the nominated films and cast their votes, based on which the final decisions are made.
The 80th Academy Awards ceremony will be held on 24th February, 2008. The spectacle and fantabulous aura of this award ceremony is being waited for with bated breath. The largest Award ceremony of international cinema, though 80 years old, is still as priceless and coveted artifact as a stone from the face of the moon!
